Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It appears the Urrbrae campuses of Uni SA and Tafe have been disregarded. The service that was going down Waite Rd looks to be discontinued and the closest bus to the City is more than 1km away at The Tollgate or Fullarton Rd. I'd think it's a mistake to drop that service. Interesting that they neg...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

The university owns the land around the station, but the multilevel car park is controlled by the hospital. Building the new Flinders Village took Governmental approval, so the opportunity to move the bus interchange was there for the Govt to take. Maybe it's not a bad thing though - the main entran...

[COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

Long time lurker first time poster here. Heard today that Coles at Arndale will be closing in early February. Perhaps something to do with the previously mentioned Stage 5 redevelopment?? I remember when it was BI-LO. I remember when it was Target (or was it Arrow?) It was Target, then Arrow, then ...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Smithy85 wrote:$44m in next week's State budget for this according to the Tiser.
I'm not sure if it is recorded on this forum anywhere, but the SA Govt contribution is the cost of moving the rail control centre that is currently on that land. At least, that was the plan when SAHMRI 2 was first proposed.

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

With the Tonsley rail extension, are they going to put a level crossing across Sturt Rd? Or will there be an overpass/underpass? Didn't the government say they were trying to get rid of level crossings? They're building an overpass. http://www.premier.sa.gov.au/stephen-mullighan-news-releases/524-g...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

This project needs a lot of extra funding to be viable. The original planned cost was for $280 million - Feds will kick in $68m, and SA Gov was going to kick in $40m. Flinders was originally going to kick in $60m. That's a pretty big shortfall...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

I was just at work meeting (Flinders Uni) where they said there was going to be a sliding at the Tonsley station to allow trains to slip past. The frequency will be 15 minutes.

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

Finally, finally, FINALLY! This has been on my personal wish-list for Adelaide public transport for years. But is that only one train track I can see in the render? Definitely looks like a single track to me. Surely they would duplicate it.. Surely!! The expressway worked fine going in one directio...

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

The train is going to the entrance of Flinders Private Hospital, behind a carpark. It's a 5 minute walk to FMC, and not very helpful for people going to most of the Uni. Previous designs have either stopped at the entrance of FMC, or stopped at FMC and the University. I can see why they did it - thi...
